Video site operators are becoming increasingly popular, with the majority of the world’s top sites now hosting video content.
Here’s how you can start your video site in Australia.
Get your business licence.
This is your first step in gaining access to video sites, and you should get a business licence for your business to work.
The Australian Film and Television Commission (AFTC) requires you to register your business with the AFTC and it can be expensive.
It can cost as much as $150 and requires an initial deposit.
You also need to complete a video content assessment and pay an additional $10.
It’s worth doing the assessment if you plan to make a profit from your business, which you can do online.
You’ll also need a business address to ensure your video content is not infringing on copyright.
To register, you’ll need to get a certificate of the business you’re planning to set up.
The certificate will be issued by the AFTSC and it should be stamped on the business’s business premises.
The AFTSS will also issue a business certificate for you.
It will cost about $150 to register a business.
The cost of this certificate can be paid online or by calling the AFTFS.
Find a suitable hosting provider.
You can find a suitable hostel or hotel in Australia to host your video.
This can be a good way to learn about your business and meet potential clients.
The best way to find a hosting company is to search online for a local hostel, and then use the search bar to find suitable locations.
The hostel will ask you about your current and future needs and rates, which will be used to make an offer.
Some hostels may have a list of preferred websites that you can choose from.
This list will be kept confidential, but it will help you choose a hostel that suits your needs and budget.
Find suitable clients.
You might have been thinking about hiring an Australian Video Production company to set-up your video studio, but you’ll have to be patient.
A video site must be in a safe place, but there are a few things that can make this a bit difficult.
Firstly, the hostel you’re considering may not be very welcoming.
You may have to ask a bit of questions before you can find an experienced Australian Video Producer to work with.
There are also some hosting companies who will charge extra fees if you hire a local Australian Video Director.
Pay for your hosting fees.
Hosting providers will usually require you to pay a minimum amount to set the server up, and if you’re not satisfied with your hosting provider, you may have some legal action on your hands.
You should also ensure that you pay a security deposit for your video hosting, which is usually around $10 per month.
This deposit can be used towards future costs if the video site goes into receivership.
The ABC has a great article on hosting costs and fees.
Submit a business plan.
If you’re happy with the hosting you’ve selected, you can submit your business plan to the AFTTSC for review.
The more work you do with the company, the better you can be as a host, and the better chances you have of securing a job.
The process is similar to the one outlined above for finding a suitable employer.
Once your plan is approved, it can take about a month or two to finalise and sign off on the plan.
It takes up to a year to complete the process, but this can be completed in two to three business days.
Get started with your video service.
There’s no need to wait until you’ve got your video licence to get started.
Once you’re a video operator, it’s a simple matter to set it up.
You need to contact the hosting company, provide the necessary information, and pay a fee.
You’re going to be asked to complete some of the required forms, and once you do this, you should complete an application form and get a security certificate.
This form will also show your video provider’s contact details and your address.
You will need to provide some information about yourself and your business.
Send the video to your local ABC newsroom.
You’ve got the video already in hand, but that’s not enough.
You want to send it to your regional ABC Newsroom.
If your video is being broadcast on the ABC News website, you need to put it in your local newsroom’s archive.
This archive is hosted on a dedicated server, which means the newsroom doesn’t have to upload your video to the news site itself.
Once it’s uploaded, the newsreader can access the video.
The main goal is to get it in the news feed.
If the video is a commercial or political event, the Newsroom should be able to upload it to a local broadcaster’s website and post it on the news website.
Receive your first video.
